Twitter Layoffs Continue Until 2023: Content Moderation Teams In Singapore, Dublin Cut Jobs

January 11, 2023: Twitter laid off dozens of employees in its trust and safety teams in its Singapore and Dublin offices in January.

The Elon Musk-led social media platform has laid off staff that manages global content moderation and moderates content related to hate speech and harassment, according to a Bloomberg report.

Noor Azhar bin Ayob, head of site integrity for Twitter’s Asia-Pacific region, and Analuisa Dominguez, senior director of revenue policy, are among the key figures to be handed the pink slip by Musk, as job cuts continue at the troubled social media company.

The report further added that the latest round of firings also eliminated roles related to disinformation, global appeal and policy on state media.

Ella Irwin, Twitter’s head of trust and safety, confirmed the development to Bloomberg, saying several staff members had been let go in the latest round of layoffs.

She added that teams that didn’t get enough “volumes” were cut; However, new employees were added to Twitter’s appeals department, and the platform will retain the head of revenue policy and head of trust and safety for the Asia Pacific region.

After buying Twitter last year in a USD 44 billion deal partially funded by USD 13 billion in debt, Musk cut the company’s staff from 7,500 to 2,500. He said that by November 2022, the company is losing US$ 4 million per day.

New changes to the Twitter interface

Twitter CEO Musk announced on Sunday that changes will soon be made to the Twitter interface and a feature will be added to enable long-form text.

“Easily swipe right/left to move between recommended vs followed tweets,” he tweeted.

Musk has made several changes to the platform over the past few months and promised many others to make the company profitable.

Speaking on the Twitter space recently, he compared Twitter to an airplane going at high speed, with engines on fire and controls not working.
